The Cook County Community YMCA held a grand opening on Saturday for the new $9.7 million facility.

After just a year of construction staff said the new building is open for business at 105 W. Fifth Street in Grand Marais. It includes a pool, teen center, and full fitness center. A 1 percent sales tax is paying for the facility that was built as an addition to the Cook County School.

The Duluth Area YMCA will operate the facility and staff said over 400 families and individuals have signed up for memberships as of Saturday. That was double the initial membership goal.
